The entire Master Liveaboards fleet is dedicated to improving environmental protection and paving the way toward more responsible tourism. Current efforts include a ban on single-use plastics aboard all vessels to be completed this year, optional beach and dive site clean-ups for passionate guests who want to get involved, and partnerships with local organisations aimed at ocean conservation. Master Liveaboards is also committed to enriching local communities by training and hiring local people whenever possible, rather than importing foreign staff.
Master Liveaboards also partners with organisations including Project Shark and Manta Trust to offer special itineraries and expeditions. These programmes focus their efforts on the region's at-risk wildlife, with citizen science and educational adventures in addition to on-the-water protection.
